This extension adds a browser button for easy access to Google Scholar from any web page. Click the Scholar button to:

- Find full text on the web or in your university library. Select the title of the paper on the page you're reading, and click the Scholar button to find it.

- Transfer your query from web search to Scholar. Press the Scholar button to see top three results; click "full screen" in the lower left of the popup to see them all.

- Format references in widely used citation styles. Press the quote button in the popup to see a formatted reference and copy it into the paper you're writing.

Library links work best when you're on campus. To configure them for off-campus use, visit Google Scholar Settings at
 (you may need to login with your library password or to set up your browser to use a library proxy; please visit your library's website or ask a local librarian for assistance).

To search the US case law, click the gear icon at the bottom of the popup, and configure your preferred collection in Google Scholar Settings.
Risk impact

Google Scholar Button requires some risky permissions and may not be safe to use. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Google Scholar Button has earned a good reputation and can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that an Edge add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Edge add-on reputation on Edge Add-on Store, the amount of time the Edge add-on has been around, and other signals about the Edge add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing an Edge add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
